— Super Sonic, Sonic the Hedgehog #29

Super Sonic[2] is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is the Super State of Sonic the Hedgehog, achieved by harnessing the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds.[1]


When transformed into Super Sonic, Sonic's blue fur turns into a gold color. Additionally, his green eyes become ruby red and his facial expression becomes more aggressive with the sharpened corners of his eyes. He also possesses a golden aura that varies in size in a flame-like shape and displays both faint sparkles and electrical sparks.


All or Nothing

Sonic entered the form of Super Sonic after he and Silver (who became Super Silver) acquired the final Chaos Emerald from Giant Zavok. Super Sonic proceeded to beat back Zavok, forcing him back down to his normal form. To get rid of the Metal Virus around the world, Super Sonic used the Warp Topaz to open a Super Warp Portal and Super Silver used his enhanced psychokinesis to remove the virus from every infected living thing on the planet. Super Sonic had opened the portal up to the sun, where the virus was immediately destroyed. As the Warp Topaz began to spin out of control, the duo flew around the world several times at super sonic speed, removing more Metal Virus at a faster pace. Once Super Silver detected that there was no more Metal Virus left, Super Sonic decided to throw the Warp Topaz away through the Super Warp Portal. However, due to the extreme instability of the Warp Topaz, this action backfired and instead created an explosion (that Sonic disappeared through) that subsequently caused a distorted green gate of energy in the sky.[3]

Powers and abilities

Super Sonic pummels Giant Zavok, from Sonic the Hedgehog #29.

Due to being infused with the seven Chaos Emeralds' power, Super Sonic accordingly commands unlimited power.[4]

As Super Sonic, Sonic's innate abilities far surpasses his normal ones. His strength has been increased to such levels that he can overpower titans like Giant Zavok, and he possesses as well improved reflexes and agility to match his improved movements. His speed has also increased so dramatically that he can circle the globe several times in mere seconds. In addition, he has been granted the power of high-speed flight. He can also channel Chaos Emerald energy, like when he channeled these energies to power the Warp Topaz.[3]


Despite possessing unlimited power, Sonic cannot just do anything with it. That means he cannot perform reality-warping feats, such as removing the Metal Virus from existence.[4]
